My instructional methods are based on the same ABA (Applied Behavioural Analysis) techniques used in the classroom, depending on the needs of the student. Due to my work experience, I have a number of colleagues and resources to draw upon after an initial assessment of the students needs, in order to best serve them.
I have to consider the genre of learners I coach to know whether teaching or facilitating is the better option for them. I humble myself to enable the special-need learners learn from me through a participatory method of teaching.
Through the extensive experience which I have gained from tutoring in both a job and volunteer aspect, I am able to effectively encourage and coach a student through their learning process. I also have excellent resources and strategies for teaching which I have acquired and adapted throughout my years of tutoring.
I am a very patient teacher and I like reading and helping others to read.
I am a firm believer in meeting the student and their guardians at their level. Therefore, I initially get to know the student and how their school day looks like. I ask about what subjects they need assistance with, what areas they find harder than others etc. From there I try to work out a system of assistance that best suits the student.
I have learned over the years that every child is different and there is no 'right' way to tutor. A special plan needs to be developed based on the child. Although teaching online is different than working together in person, success is always the goal.
I usually base my classes/sessions on what the child needs help with the most . My classes will always attend to the work or areas that need the most attention. Each class will depend on the child and his/her's needs.
I am very flexible and not adverse to using a variety of methods to meet the needs of every student. Enthusiasm and fun are the top two examples. A whole language approach with phonetics thrown in as a start. Selecting specific reading material to match the child's interests and reading level.
I use research-based strategies for learning and tailor my instruction to each student's needs and learning style. I like to get to know what you excel in and what you struggle with, what type of learner are you (visual, verbal, kinesthetic, logical?), if you are a minor I like to speak with the parent and the child on what areas we should focus on.
Beaking acedimic skills down into smaller teachable components so those who struggle can learn step-by-step. Repetition is used to achieve success. Tutoring will be individualized for each learner. Academic assessment done using ABLLS-R when required. I am located near Barrie, Ontario.
I believe the role of education is to prepare students for the world outside of school. Children have been given more responsibilities at a younger age in today's society. In order to provide education to these children, schools need to be a place where students, as well as their parents, feel comfortable.
I like to teach to my students needs. It is important to me to know my students well enough to develop my lessons to best suit them. I have much experience teaching students of all abilities and am very capable of designing lesson plans to suit the needs of all.
I work with students to see what their strengths and weaknesses are and I like to work with each student on an individual case by case basis as each student learns differently. I enjoy getting to know students likes and work them into my classes.
As a tutor to a person who has difficulties with learning, I believe I have to make a strong relationship with that person first. After communicating and making sure that my student is relaxed, I start my teaching. I begin with asking them questions as I patiently listen to them, while I correcting them if needed.
My approach is student centered...assessing their current knowledge base and building on it. Lessons use all 3 learning pathways: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Each lesson is individually crafted to match the student's needs. Anyone struggling with reading (from Kindergarten to adult) will benefit from this approach.
My methodology is to alter learning goals to fit each and every student I work with. To ensure that every lesson is customized to that particular students learning style. I believe that given the right tools and materials every child is capable of success.
I don't have very static and standardized teaching methods, due to the fact I'm very aware of people's specific needs, background, questions and doubts that can appear during the tutoring process, and especially the way HOW do they learn things. Although regarding methodology, I'm based on methods such as Bloom's Taxonomy, Problem/Project-Based Learning, etc.
Online video conferencing one to one. For Reading, we use a direct instruction method that is accepted by school boards all over North America. For ESL, I have developed a methodology that I train executives in. My partner has tutored special needs children in Direct Instruction methodology for 17 years.
I base my classes on the individualized learning needs of the student, I aim to establish a positive relationship with the student in order to promote a more comfortable and enjoyable experience.
I am a spoonful teacher yet demonstrative. I want my students to learn by their own with just facilitating them or giving them directions. I also listen to their weaknesses so that I can help them and make those weakness into strength.
I am fondly called Nelo. I love teaching children on the spectrum, especially ASD. I have also worked with children diagnosed with Down Syndrome, Congenital Heart Disorders, Cerebral Palsy and Learning Disabilities. I base my classes on routine and structure, especially for hyper active children but on the other hand, child centered or a flexible approach is adopted to make learning fun.

I help a student find herself or himself the right answer by probing and prompting. I find it creative and interesting way to transfer the know how. To get student to participate to their full potential, I am fun and try my best to use fun, not boring examples.
I am a student-centered type of teacher. i teach based on the different needs of my diverse students. I approach a subject with passion, patience, and determination because I believe that every child with special needs can learn not by snatching their works from their hands, but by helping and giving more time for them to learn.
I think it's important to work as a team and that's why I like to know the goals of each student / client / family and that together we make a plan for the class and what kinds of techniques and methods are going to be most effective. Classes can be individual or in a small group.
I like to try and help wherever possible, and can be available to help over night, early mornings and late evenings as well. I take into account how you can handle and cope with certain things and always let you be in control of what you would like to do/learn.

I like to use the Reggio Emilia method, which is based on meaningful learning through experience, dynamics and playfulness; however, I adapt the pedagogical strategies according to the needs, times, particularities and demands of the child or group.

I am one of a small number of the UK's elite "career" tutors. I do not do tutoring on the side of another profession nor fit it in around other studies - it is my sole occupation and my passion.
